PRELIMINARY SAFEGUARDS REPORT FOR THE EXPERIMENTAL BERYLLIUM OXIDE REACTOR (EBOR)

Summary safeguard information for the experimental beryllium oxide reactor (EBOR) to be located at the National Reactor Test Station at Arco, Idaho is given. The EBOR is designed to develop the concept of the beryllia-moderated gas-cooled reactor. Experiment objectives are to demonstrate reactor safety, reliability, operability, and controllability, to provide a basis for developing specific power plant applications, and to advance high temperature gas-cooled reactor technology. The experimental facility has been analyzed sufficiently to establish that it may be operated safely. This report covers site, facility and experimental equipment description, plant operation, and hazards evaluation.
